Re: [BKARTS] [Bright Hill Press National Juried Exhibition

           See The Exhibition Online, And Order Your Catalog.

Dear Book Artists,

We qt Bright Hill Press apologize for any inconvenience but the
Book Arts Exhibition originally planned for July, 2002 at the Bright Hill
Center in Treadwell, NY, will be postponed to October, 2002, with an
entry receipt deadline of September 3, 2002.  In addition, we wish to
clear up any confusion regarding the show:  the first Bright Hill Press
National Book Arts Juried Exhibition will be an exhibition rather than
a competition and, as such, will offer no awards, monetary or
otherwise.  There will be a catalog that will be sent to all entrants.
The revised Call for Entries is below, and the required entry form and
guidelines are available by emailing wordthur@catskill.net.  Thank
you for your understanding.  Bertha Rogers, Director


Bright Hill Press, at the Bright Hill Center in Treadwell, New
York, announces a call for entries for the first Bright Hill Press
National Book Arts Juried Exhibition, to be juried by Richard Minsky,
book artist and creator of The Center for Book Arts in NYC; and
Peter Verheyen, book binder, conservator, and founder of
the Book Arts Web and List Serv.

The exhibition will be held from October 5 through 27, 2002, at the
Bright Hill Center, 94 Church Street, Treadwell,
NY 13846 (in the Catskill Mountain Region).  The opening
reception is  October 5, 2002, from 2-5 p.m.

Send no more than three works —  one-of-a-kind,
editioned, sculptural, wearable, fine press, architectural, or
textual —  in a sturdy, reshippable container.  Insure your
work and enclose postage that includes the cost of
insurance (or a check for shipping and insurance) for
return. Work is insured while at the Center.  If you do not wish your
work handled specify so; otherwise, the Center will provide gloves for
that purpose.  In addition, an attendant will be on hand during gallery
hours.  Size limited to 50 inches high by 30 inches wide.  Maximum
three entries per press and/or person allowed; entry fee is $20 for one
to three artists’ books.  Completed entries must be received at
the Center by September 3, 2002; ship by U.S. Post or other
carrier.  If an artist or press sends three books and one or
two are accepted, the unaccepted book(s) will remain at the
Center until the exhibition closes, at which time all work will
be returned to the artist. Notices of acceptance will be sent
no later than September 15.

Include a biography of no more than 150 words and an
artist’s statement.  Do not include any additional materials.
A catalog of the exhibition will be produced.

Required entry form may be obtained by e-mailing
bkrogers@catskill.net or wordthur@catskill.net
